Asiatic Society of Bangladesh

Established in 1952, the intention of the Asiatic Society of Bangladesh was to make the organization a centre of learning specializing in Asian studies. One of the Asiatic Society’s contribution is the Banglapedia – the National Encyclopedia of Bangladesh and is by far, the most comprehensive reference work on Bangladesh from high ancient period to date. 

The Encyclopedia of Bangladesh War of Liberation is another important project the organisation is working on. The ten-volume Encyclopedia in print, multimedia and online versions on Bangladesh War of Liberation will be launched preceding the Golden Jubilee celebration of the nation's 50th Independence in the year 2021.

The Asiatic Society of Bangladesh also publishes books on varied genres, such as folklore, art, culture, history, law, etc.
